“After talking to title agents from around the country, we found that wire fraud is one of the biggest risks facing their operation today,” said Jason M. Gordon, President of AmTrust Title. “We are making a conscious decision to offer the use of CertifID to protect them and their customers from loss.”
 
AmTrust title agents will join with CertifID’s current client base to take advantage of streamlining the flow of wire information to their customers, without the need for additional usernames and passwords. It also eliminates the necessity for agents to make countless phone calls to validate wire information saving valuable processing time.

When a leader like AmTrust Title makes this kind of statement, we’re taking a huge step in the right direction.”
